The Air Mobility Command Museum will hold its annual Veterans Day observance beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11.

It is free to all, Museum Director John Taylor said.

The day’s guest speaker will be retired U.S. Army Col. Eugenia Thornton and the Milford Community Band will provide a medley of music honoring all veterans.

The entire event, including parking, is free.
